The Georgia Automotive Manufacturers Association is gearing up for its annual Economic Forecast meeting, which is November 13 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Douglasville Conference Center in Douglasville, Georgia.
This year’s keynote presentation will be presented by William Strauss, a senior economist and economic advisor in the economic research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
Strauss analyzes the current performance of both the Midwest economy and the manufacturing and automotive sectors for use in monetary policy. He also organizes the bank’s Automotive Outlook Symposium, as well as conducting industrial and manufacturing roundtables throughout the year.
At the GAMA event, he will specifically address the outlook for the automotive industry, which will include a question and answer session for attendees.
In addition, the event also will include a presentation by Michael Gonsalves, senior regional manager for the Southeast United States, Export Development Canada. Gonsalves, who plans to speak on the multiple reasons companies need a foreign economic development partner, is located in the Atlanta, Georgia office of the EDC.
In a recent blog post, he noted that the automotive sector in the Southeast has continued to grow, comparing favorably to legacy states, such as Michigan.
Registration for this event is still open, with early registration expiring on November 4. For more information or to register, visit gama.georgia.org.
